Tuesday Morning

O Lord,
You know my every movement. From the moment that I wake you are surrounding me with your grace, even when I am unaware. Your goodness is before my first step, and I inhale it with my first breath.
If only my day were filled with such knowledge of you, perhaps it would be too wonderful to bear. Instead I go about my hours filled with thoughts of self and self-interest, wondering how I might best serve myself. You alone are worthy of my time and my passions, and yet I am consumed with my own life.
As I take a deep breath and am filled with your peace, prepare me for a day of glorifying you rather than self. You alone are God, worthy of my praise!
